Vegetarian traveling with omnivores in Tokyo and Kyoto

kcmorders | Dec 29, 201704:15 PM     8

I'll be visiting Tokyo and Kyoto this spring with an extended family group. I'm the only vegetarian (ovo/lacto/no dashi). My understanding so far is that while there are plenty of vegetarian restaurants, many restaurants that aren't specifically vegetarian lack vegetarian options.

Can anyone comment on their experience? Any tips on how to navigate the choppy waters of being a vegetarian in a non-veg group (at non-veg restaurants) in either Tokyo or Kyoto?

Thanks for any feedback.
